After a successful inaugural event, Rob Patz and Coastal Events announce that Christian
Country at the Creek will return to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, in 2020.
Rob Patz, owner of Coastal Events and the visionary behind the event explains, “I believe that
Christian Country music is ready to explode. There are so many talented artists in this genre,
and I wanted to create a marquee event where we can showcase them. This year Christian
Country at the Creek was a two day showcase during the week of Creekside. In 2020, it will
be its own stand alone event.”
Christian Country at the Creek 2020 will take place October 30 through November 1 at the
Grand Smokies Resort Convention Center located at 2385 Parkway, Pigeon Forge,
Tennessee. The event will begin the day after Creekside ends, with a special kick off on
Thursday night at the close of Creekside, followed by evening concerts on Friday, Saturday,
and Sunday. Special events and Midnight Prayer are also being planned as part of Christian
Country at the Creek. “This is an event you don’t want to miss. We can’t wait to showcase
these amazing artists,” Patz adds.
Dennis and Leslie McKay of The McKay Project will once again be the hosts of Christian
Country at the Creek and had this to say about the music they love: “Christian Country music
is an amazing genre of music that touches the hearts of everyday regular folks. The songs tell
about Jesus through stories of real life joys and struggles and many times with a guitar in the
hand of the artist. Leslie and I are excited to be a part of Christian Country at the Creek and
believe in spreading the word about this great music. We look forward to the 2020 event and
hope everyone will make plans to join us.”
Diamond Award winner Jessica Horton, who will also be returning next year, states, “I had a
great time at the first annual Christian Country at the Creek! I made lots of new friends and
connected with some amazing artists with their own unique Country sounds.” Horton goes on
to explain why she believes this event is so important to the Christian Country community.
“This is event is a great way for artists in our genre to encourage one another and for our
unique sound to gain traction and create a broader fan base. So many friends say, ‘What is
Christian Country? What stations play it?’ Coastal Events has created something that can
light a flame under it. I tell people all the time, country music always turns back to its roots.
We’ll be right where we need to be, creating faith and family music to encourage and inspire.”
